  2. C4C Translation
  3. Memorization

Text

μακάριοι οἱ ἐλεήμονες,
ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἐλεηθήσονται.1

7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.2
Today, C4C is studying Mt 5:1-12.




C4C Translation

Blissful are the merciful,

because they will be shown mercy

OR

The merciful are blissful,

because they will be shown mercy

To see why I prefer blissful, see the discussion of the word μακάριος (makarios) in the post for the C4C commentary on Matthew 5:8.
